Errol Flynn inspecting old firearms on the set of Captain Blood (1935)
Too bad about James Gandolfini’s death. He had a massive heart attack in Italy. I liked him in most of his movies and in the Sopranos, even though I only managed to watch about a dozen or so episodes. Rest in peace, James.
Omfg I was sitting in a room with a bunch of my aunts, uncles and cousins and my grandma had this weird smile on her face so I asked her what was up and she just looked at me and said “everyone in this house is alive thanks to my vagina”
One of my fave Shania Twain photoshoots :)

100 Days of Musical Theatre (Day 15) - Sweet Charity (1966)
My mom and I had fun at a local production of this. I hadn’t seen a production of this in about 13 years, so it was like seeing it with fresh eyes and ears.
A lot of the dancing reminded me of a few Austin Power’s scenes.
I love the songs, too. Really underrated and hardly recognized.

Movies in 2013 - #84 American Graffiti (George Lucas, 1973)
A movie I first watched when I was about 14-15 years old. It was filmed primarily in Modesto, which is about a two hour drive (or less) southeast of me. I just learned the plane scene at the end was filmed at a local airport that is only about 15 minutes away.

John Krasinski wrote what’s inside the card at some point prior to us shooting the scene for A.A.R.M. and it is a private message to his co-star and dear friend, Jenna Fischer. They are the only ones who knows what it says. She read it for the first time when he gave it to her in the first take we shot and I can tell you that judging from her emotional response, it’s really something special.
